Penguin Party Food Ideas

Egg Penguins

You will need:boiled egg penguins
  • Boiled eggs black olives, whole and pitted
  • carrot sticks
  • lettuce for garnish, optional
To prepare your penguins, Cut one black olive in half for his flippers. Attach flippers to the egg by adding a dot of cream cheese to each olive half. Place on sides of egg. For the head, add cream cheese to the bottom of a whole olive and place on top of egg. If having problems staying on attach with a toothpick.

For his feet, use slivers of carrot sticks and attach on into his olive head for a beak as well. If needed poke a small hole with a toothpick for inserting the carrot nose.

Mini Cheese Ball Penguins

For these littler penguins I've used a simple cheeseball recipe. However, do not roll in nuts. Then make cheese into small balls and chill several hours or until firm.
You will also need:
  • carrot circles and carrot sticks
  • black olives, pitted and whole
  • toothpicks
  • extra cream cheese or cheeseball, soft for attaching
To create these penguins, cut one black olive in half for the flippers. Attach to sides of your small balls. If needed, use soft cream cheese to help the olives stick. Cut a small notch out of carrot circles and place a dot of cream cheese on top. Place a penguin on the cheese and press into place. For his beak cut out a small piece of carrot from a carrot stick and attach inside a whole olive for his head. Add a dot of cream cheese to the top of his body and attach head to body. If needed use a toothpick to secure in place.
